murdered, yet we all see what happened in that tragedy at the sandy hook elementary school why were people moved by those children being murdered? >> guest: people are as concerned about the death of a black child and as they are about the death of a black child that is one of the fundamental issues that we still address. we have had situations where assault weapons are used on a weekly basis in their urban areas and the victims are children. >> host: 500 people in 2012 for murder, black people were murdered on the south side of chicago and seems to matter more that they are killing each other in their children are dead and it doesn't seem to be the uproar in the country even in our community about it. >> guest: but that's where we are as a nation. most americans black-and-white and of all races understand the we are not the equal nation that we say we are. but there's still a reluctance to address that issue and understand that part of it comes from if you put one of the laws of school education is that white children are an inferior schools. >> host: there's action. >> guest: there's act
the victims of hurricane sandy. these were debated in the senate. we have to take prevent costumes and preventions before another hurricane sandy. thousands of homes and businesses were destroyed in new york, new jersey, and new england, and 10,000 americans were left homeless. we have a responsibility to rebuild their lives and their communities. as we have done with those who are victims of fire and other natural disasters and other parts of the nation. we will consider changes to the senate rules. because this is a matter of additional debate, we reserve the right of all senators to oppose changes to the senate rules. it is my intention that the senate rules are continued and allow these important rules discussion to continue. i'm hopeful am cautiously optimistic that the republicans and democrats can reach an agreement to manage the senate more effectively in coming months. >> republican leader? >> mr. president, i want to start by co want to start by congratulating president obama on his inauguration. presidential inauguration to always time for the country to come together. w
themselves down. so super storm sandy in the midwest and impact on agriculture, bodleian flyers, the earthquake, tsunami and it clear reactor accident in japan last year, haiti earthquake. the list is long and worrying. in 2011, we had more disasters in the united states costing over a billion dollars. in fact, even more disasters, but not quite as many in 2012. the drought is super storm are hugely expensive. so disasters are happening with greater frequency, greater severity and absolutely with much, much greater cost. so we are here over the next three days to work across traditional boundaries to connect scientists as part tichenor's, with policymakers from the international to the local level, with conservation organization, with corporations and it is our belief that only, i want to emphasize only by working together can we solve these immense challenges that face us. and the costs are not simply financial, but as we tragically know, and many, many lives are lost in these disasters. and so, if we can come up with just one useful idea in the next three days, the benefit, ev
. but there really was a balance sheet driven industry. and along came my friend sandy lyle who i referred to earlier, a brilliant fellow, who through the travelers transaction figured out a way in essence to transform banking to an income statement driven system. i've been a hedge fund for years, as you mentioned. i cared about what i made every year, and it was a different culture than that i experienced as a banker. so i'm not sure we can stuff dodd-frank, that gene, back in the bottle. i'm not saying, we're not saying, our teams are not saying that the holding copies cannot engage in these other activities but other activities but what we're saying is they will not have government guarantees. they will not be able to borrow from the discount window, plain and simple. every simple. everyone of their clients will acknowledge the fact that that money is at risk. so it's not forbidding. it doesn't formally split, but it applies to guarantees only to specific practice, what we would call commercial banking, to deposit taking entity. and to none of the rest it would be made extremely clear. as to the s
